Why not open Poulsbo’s 7th Avenue extension?

The in basket: Dan Godeke asks, “What is going on with the new road that links Seventh Avenue to Forest Rock (in Poulsbo)?
“The road has been paved, all the marking have been painted on the road and all the signage is in place. The curbs and sidewalks are even done but the road is still closed.


The in basket: Dan Godeke asks, “What is going on with the new road that links Seventh Avenue to Forest Rock (in Poulsbo)?
 “The road has been paved, all the marking have been painted on the road and all the signage is in place.  The curbs and sidewalks are even done but the road is still closed.
 “It baffles me that we pay for a road to be built and then can’t use it,” says Dan.
The out basket: The first 500 feet or so of the new street closest to Poulsbo Village was build and paid for by a private developer, which must dedicate the right of way to the city before Poulsbo can allow traffic to use it. Mike Lund of the city engineering staff doesn’t know when the final details of the transfer will be accomplished, but hopes it will be soon.
The city and state paid for the portion of the road beyond what the developer built.
